IZEA, dubbed The Sponsorship Marketplace, connects bloggers and their social media networks to big brands. IZEA is a way for bloggers to generate a little extra revenue from their blogs. Formerly known for providing advertising options to bloggers, IZEA has since expanded and now has a whole new platform to help Bloggers make money from Advertisers.
How Do I Get My Blog Sponsored?
After you create an account on IZEA, you will have access to a dashboard. There you will find current brands who are looking to reach a bigger social network. Each offer will list instructions and the ideal candidates they are hoping will apply to their sponsorship program.
For example, Lenovo had a sponsorship program that would require ideal candidates to tweet about one of their laptops. The ideal candidate is someone who loves Lenovo products. I just so happen to use a Lenovo computer and love it. So, this offer was perfect for me. Not only do I love Lenovo but my audience would be interested in this pitch since most of the work at home readers use laptops. Since I have one myself, I can feel comfortable standing behind them with my testimony.
To apply for the sponsorship I was asked to explain why I am an ideal candidate and tell them what I would charge for posting to twitter. I chose to ask for $10 per tweet.
Now my bid is pending as Lenovo chooses which bloggers to sponsor.
Does IZEA Charge?
Registering is completely free and you are able to bid on up to 3 projects per month. If you choose to upgrade to a paid membership you will receive unlimited bids as well as a lower cashout level.
Free members must have a minimum of $100 to cashout. Upgrading to “Standard” is just $1 a month and allows you to cashout at $50. The Pro membership package is $5 a month and has a minimum cashout level of $25. Again, the paid memberships allow you to bid on an unlimited number of projects a month.
Are There Many Offers?
I have 7 open projects at the moment. However, my guess is that different bloggers will see different sponsorships based on their interests.
How does IZEA Pay?
IZEA pays through PayPal once you have enough funds to withdraw. If you want to withdraw early there is an early withdrawal fee. My free account would cost me $3 to cash out before I reach my $100 limit.
There’s a Referral Program?
Yes! Since IZEA is all about having a big network of bloggers to entice big brands- they are willing to share part of what your referrals earn as well as for bringing in advertisers.
Earn 2.5-5% of what your referrals earn.
IZEA gives you a referral link and there are a variety of banners you can place on your blog.

Stumble across your blog off of Google+ and glad I did! I have never heard of this site but it is very interesting to me. There are plenty of methods to make money online but Ill take $10 per tweet any day : )

Happened upon your post while researching how Izea works. Thanks for a great explanation and getting to the nitty ($$) gritty, too. You’ve helped me a time or two before; that isn’t going unnoticed. Thanks again 🙂

If your to spend advertising dollars to promote your business you may find better results paying the source such as twitter or facebook and not a middle man such as Izea.
